Dr. Mark Weisbrot, Center for Economic and Policy Research (C.E.P.R.)/Just Foreign Policy/FAILED: What the “Experts” Got Wrong about the Global Economy, joins Thom. While Trump has run a campaign based on the promise that he’ll put Americans back to work by ending or renegotiating all of our disastrous trade deals – Mike Pence has made a career in Washington supporting every single one of those trade deals! Seriously – he’s shown so much support for our so-called free trade deals that the Chamber of Commerce recently wrote a piece called “Mike Pence Has a Great Track Record on Trade” celebrating his support of every single trade deal that Donald Trump opposes. Back in 2001 he pushed to give “trade promotion authority” – also known as fast track authority – to George W. Bush. So – will this ticket divided be able to stand?
